Report: Key “StarCaps” figure fined $60,000 for mislabeling of drug

The leader of the company that made the infamous StarCaps nutritional supplement has been fined for the misbranding of the drug.

Nikki Haskell, who incorporated the now-defunct company that sold StarCaps, was fined $60,000 on Friday by a federal judge in New York, according to Reuters. Haskell plead guilty to a misdemeanor in March in connection with the misbranding.

StarCaps was a weight-loss aide that contained bumetanide, a substance banned by the NFL. However, the presence of bumetanide was not listed as an ingredient in the drug. Seahawks defensive tackle Kevin Williams and Patriots defensive end Will Smith were among the players who served suspensions for taking StarCaps after a legal battle.

In her court appearance Friday, Haskell claimed she wasn’t aware of what bumetanide was “until I heard these football players were using it,” according to Reuters.

sixty K for a case that lasted 3 years and hurt 7 players and 2 teams? Hilarious.
Star Caps changed the recipe and didn't tell the players. Yes, the players are supposed to resubmit paperwork on everything they take every year, but if you take Tylenol today, you kind of expect it to be be the same Tylenol you took last year.
